It’s Sharkception: Scientists Catch a Shark Within a Shark

It's crazy how some things work out in nature, sometimes. The photo above shows scientists attempting to reel in a shark that has been swallowed whole by an even bigger shark. The smaller shark is a 3-foot spiny dogfish shark and even though it looks relatively small, I'm willing to bet that it can still make you shart in your pants and then some if you see it.

The bigger shark is a sand tiger shark that's got layers of dagger-like teeth all over its mouth that's perfect for spearing bony fishes and other crustaceans that it loves to much on. Just imagine what would happen to your arm if this shark decided to chew on it. Apparently scientists were trying to recapture sharks that had been tagged for their research.

Is this Mother Nature's twisted way of demonstrating how the 'Circle of Life' goes on in the world or is it just Sharkception? Regardless, it's pretty amazing, made even more amazing by the fact that it was capture on film (or more accurately, on memory card.)
